Xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) existing in two interconvertible forms, xanthine dehydrogenase (XDH) and xanthine oxidase (XO), catabolises xanthine to uric acid that is further broken down to antioxidative agent allantoin. XOR also produces free radicals serving as second messenger and microbicidal agent. Large variation in the XO activity has been...


... an important enzyme for the catalysis of xanthine to hypoxanthine and hypoxanthine to uric acid (UA). The molybdenum cofactor is the active site of this enzyme, whereas the iron atom (2Fe-2S) helps for the electron transfer system (1)(2)(3)(4). The overactivity of XO is directly linked with excessive UA production. ...
